Supporting Community Wellness in Santa Fe
Ray Kurshals, owner of Pilates Santa Fe, feels strongly about supporting a healthy body by offering services that support health and wellness in the body. That’s why he offers whole body health products and services at his business. With a rise in environmental toxins being a health concern for many, Kurshals is always on the lookout for products and services that are beneficial for detoxification. He offers three modalities—the infrared sauna, ozone therapy, and an ion detox footbath. “Each one of these offers incredible beneficial, healing properties,” he shares.
Far Infrared Sauna
According to Kurshals, far infrared sauna therapy boosts the body’s ability to detoxify, leading to significant and lasting health benefits. “In fact, use of the Thermal Life Far Infrared Sauna is recognized worldwide by medical doctors and health practitioners as perhaps the most effective method of removing both chemical and heavy metal toxins from the body,” he says.
Far infrared is a section of the natural band of light that is not visible to the human eye, but can be felt as heat. Unlike the high heat produced in traditional saunas, the far infrared sauna is able to penetrate the body to a depth of 1.5 to 2 inches. This stimulates the body’s cellular detoxification process more effectively and at a lower temperature than a traditional sauna.
Contraindications: Hemophiliacs and pregnant or nursing women should not use the sauna. People with advanced symptomatic heart disease, unstable angina, or severe adrenal suppression should use the sauna only under medical supervision.
“Ozone Therapy is the most powerful cleansing modality,” says Kurshals. “Ozone is produced by lightning in nature and by pulsing high currents of electricity through medical grade oxygen. It is very powerful in that it increases the stability of normal good healthy cells and destroys immature, sick and deformed cells which are foreign to the body, like viruses, bacteria and fungi.”
Kurshals reports that there is no evidence suggesting that long-term treatment on a daily basis had any detrimental effect. “Doctors who have used it for decades have only positive results to report. Ozone is the treatment of choice for a wide variety of diseases and has proven to be the safest medical therapy ever devised.”
Benefits of Ozone Therapy:
1. Ozone stimulates the production of white blood cells.
2. Ozone kills most bacteria at low concentrations.
3. Ozone oxidizes arterial plaque. It breaks down the plaque involved in both arteriosclerosis and arthrosclerosis.
4. Ozone fights viruses in a variety of ways, attacking viral particles directly.
5. Ozone is effective against all types of fungi.
6. Ozone is an antineoplastic, which inhibits cancer cells.
7. Interferon levels are significantly increased. Interferon’s orchestrate every aspect of the immune system, and inhibit viral replication.
Ion Detox Footbath
Kurshals shares, “The ion detox works by utilizing direct current to create an electromagnetic ionic field in which the client places their hands or feet in an aqueous salt and mineral solution to increase energy and the positively charged cellular activity through the attached array. Water molecules that pass through the array are split, causing the ionic field.”
The array is placed near the client and exposed to a low intensity ion field and in contact with all the primary meridians in the body. “The meridians are one of several pathways for toxins released to exit the body. Capillaries and lymphatic channels will also pick up toxins and carry them to the liver and kidneys, where they will be detoxified and/or excreted,” adds Kurshals.
